Recommendation: Amplifier - The Octopus (2010)
The trio of Amplifier from Manchester has been making some noise since their s/t debut released in 2004 and the sophomore album, Insider from 2006.
I've only had the pleasure of hearing their first album and was quite taken by their space-rock brand, but I was not prepared for the surprise held within the opus that is the double album, The Octopus, released in 2010. This album sees them being quite experimental and daring while still providing their sharp and catchy space-rock tunes. I'm still absorbing this album but it gets better with each listen. A real treat!
You can stream it on their Bandcamp:
